PRINCE William was left at his “lowest point” as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s departure from the Firm took its toll. The Sussexes’ Oprah Winfrey interview shook the Royal Family to its core, but sparked “added anguish” for Prince William, a royal author has claimed.
After quitting royal duties in 2020, the Sussexes moved across the pond to pursue their own opportunities and to be “financially independent”.
In the aftermath of the interview being aired, Buckingham Palace released a statement addressing the accusations, which read: “While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.”
According to royal author Robert Hardman, the interview particularly impacted Harry’s older brother William. In an extract of his new book, ‘Queen Of Our Times: The Life Of Elizabeth II’ published by Macmillan on March 17, Mr Hardman wrote:
“For Prince William, there was the added anguish of seeing the younger brother whom he had protected (and who had idolised him) now throwing incendiary and, in some cases, unanswerable charges into the public domain, fully aware of their likely impact.
‘William,’ says one friend, ‘was as low as I’d ever seen him.’ “Since the Oprah interview, the brothers have only met twice — at Prince Philip’s funeral and at the unveiling of the statue of their mother at Kensington Palace.”
Prince Charles and the future of Buckingham Palace
It is thought that Prince Charles will take up residence in Buckingham Palace when he becomes king. This is despite being known to prefer living in Clarence House.
Prince Charles is said to be keen that his mother’s home remains as “monarchy HQ” when he takes over. He also plans to allow greater access for the public at Buckingham Palace and other properties as he heads a new era for the royals.
